Rutger Hauer joins True Blood Season 6


As if being in a permanent Skarsporn frenzy all day due to Alex’s appearance at Roma Fiction Fest was not enough to keep any self-respecting Trubie happy, TV Line has just brought us the first big news for True Blood Season 6.

Experienced Dutch actor Rutger Hauer has joined the cast and will be playing a character called Macklyn who will have ties to Sookie and Jason.

True Blood has made its first major Season 6 hire, and it’s pretty bloody fangtastic. Acting vet Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner) is joining the HBO smash as a series regular, TVLine has learned exclusively Hauer will play Macklyn, a mysterious and sinister figure with deep ties to Sookie and Jason.  Hauer is well known for his portrayal of Blade Runner‘s Roy Batty, a renegade robot trying to evade capture in Ridley Scott’s classic sci-fi film. But the Dutch actor has a varied resume that includes parts in movies like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Batman Begins and Sin City and guest roles in TV’s Smallville and Alias. In 1988, he won a Golden Globe for his work in the TV movie Escape From Sobibor.

So what do we think about this? My mind immediately goes in two different directions – Warlow connection or Niall Brigant (Sookie’s fairy great-grandfather from the SVM books).

Remember in Season 5 when it is revealed that the contract Sookie’s ancestor made for his first born female fairy descendant was with a Mr M Warlow, so maybe it is M for Macklyn Warlow?

Let us know what you think about this first Season 6 casting.

  1. I think he will be their grand-grand-pa Niall from books. I always want to see him on sceen. I hope it’s him & shred more info on warlow. I hope he isn’t warlow.

  2. Okay, I probably should have read this before I made guesses…lol! Yeah, I definitely say he’s Warlow.

  3. Yeah im putting my money on warlow and kind of hoping its him because I dont want niall to be portrayed as sinister, but at the same time I dont want to see the negative impact warlow is likely to have on sookie and jason but I kind of want to see the whole mystery played out finally. Can u say conflicted? Lol. Its exciting though!

  4. Shelli~Think that Rutgar Hauer will turn out to be M. Warlow
    That’s who’s connected to Sookie~Naill is also connected but I think it would be
    better if John Voit played the part?????

  5. I think he will be Niall. After all fairies do have a sinister side to them. I think Stellan Skarsgard would be excellent to play Niall or Warlow…

    • That would be coo.l Stellan plays Niall. Probably Nora makes deals Warlow to get rid of Billith to have Sookie

  6. M Warlow..yep, I guess that would make him the front runner for that character. Have loved this actor for a long time. I remember an interview with Anne Rice years ago when she asked who she saw as being the perfect actor to portray Lestat in “Interview with the Vampire”.. her answer was a young Rutger Hauer..Look forward to seeing him next season..and since they have gone so far from the books at this point, there’s no way to guess where they will take the story next year..

  7. I believe he will be M. Warlow as well ..Can;t wait to see him as Macklyn I always loved his acting . I feel he will do great on this show . …

  8. Why would we think he would be Niall? That would be to much like the books. We can’t have the show be like the books, we would all know what was going to happen. Heaven forbid.

  9. I really don’t think that Rutger Hauer is Warlow, as he is much taller and broader than the figure we saw of Warlow in the flashback. But, then again it is TB and they are known to be inconsistant with their storylines, so I guess I’ll just go with I don’t know what role Macklyn will have in the coming season. I’m just glad that they have cast one of my all time favorite actors and hope he’ll be around in more episodes than Chris Meloni was last season.

    • There was a rumor that they just used a stuntman for the Warlow scene last season as an actor hadn’t yet been cast. Of course there are always many rumors with TB and most are false but you never know!

      • Yeah, I can still easily see him as Warlow even if he doesn’t exactly match the description of what we were shown last season.

  10. […] for some True Blood news? Rutger Hauer has now joined the show! Plus, the first of probably many, many True Blood casting calls have now […]
